The UFC also announced the promotion of Andre Gromkovski as Vice President for UFC Russia. His primary duties will include implementing a national strategy to grow the sport further, working with executive teams in Las Vegas and the EMEA in London, England. Given that this debut in Moscow will be a Fight Night card, Nurmagomedov will nearly certainly not be on the bill, but rather saved for pay-per-view card sometime thereafter.
